- The Analog Vault // Essential Listening -

Recorded in a single immortal session, this 1963 tour de force became one of Charles Mingus’ most towering achievements. Consisting of a single continuous composition, divided into four tracks and six movements - the American double bass doyen, alongside his 11-piece band, crafted a complex aural exploration of his own tortured psyche. This album is a structurally adventurous and hauntingly eloquent song suite, a multi-layered swirl of emotion manipulated through a rumbling swarm of saxes, flamenco guitar lines and expressive upper woodwinds. The Black Saint And The Sinner Lady’s balletic struggle between rage and suffering is without a doubt one of the most awe-inspiring and fiercely avant garde compositional manoeuvres in jazz history.
